According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2015, 2.9 million people were injured on the job. While many individuals understand that they are entitled to some sort of compensation after being injured on the job, not many people have the resources or wherewithal to fully exercise their legal rights.
Workers injured on the job all too often assume they are barred from suing their employers, but that is not necessarily the case. Workers are only prevented from suing their employer when their employer participates in a state-sanctioned workers’ compensation program. It is important to understand that even though your employer may provide insurance that covers medical bills and lost wages, or provides you with short- or long-term disability, you can still sue them for a work-related injury.
Even if you are not able to sue your own employer in the event that you are injured, due to workers’ compensation, there is still a chance you can get the compensation you deserve. Many states have exceptions to the exclusive remedy provision for workers’ compensation, and one of those exceptions is allowing individuals to sue a third party. Many workplaces often see collaboration between many companies on a project, and if one of those other companies is responsible for your injury, you may be able to seek compensation from them, even if you have already received workers’ compensation benefits.
